Get Involved

We offer regular opportunities to carry out internships with the Royal African Society.


Our internships run on a three-month basis and we request a minimum commitment of two days (15 hours) per week. Successful applicants can expect to gain experience across our different programmes, with a primary focus on our public events and marketing.


Our internships are voluntary, but we can offer:


Expenses of up to £20 per day
Flexible working hours and an enabling working environment.
Mentoring by our committed and experienced staff team of eight.
Networking opportunities with leading figures in academia, business, politics, arts, and education.


Please note that the Royal African Society is not able to offer assistance in finding accommodation, nor can it apply for work permits or visas.


Our next round of internships will run from January 2020 and applications will be open from November 2019.


If you would like to express your interest in interning for us before then, please send your CV and a brief introductory email Hoda Dahir, Corporate and Public Events Manager, on
